The Purple Diamond® Loropetalum is a vigorous evergreen bush with upright growth, reaching 5 to 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide within a few years. Its dense branching keeps it compact and bushy, and the bold purple foliage keeps its color all year round. Spring leaves are brighter red, and the flowers that come in early spring are a brilliant pink color. This is definitely one of the brightest and showiest shrubs you can grow. It is perfect as an accent specimen, planted around your home or at the back of beds, and it also makes a colorful screen or hedge.

  • Bold purple foliage all summer and winter
  • Dark red spring leaves
  • Covered in bright pink flowers in spring
  • Ideal upright form for specimens and hedges
  • Strong growing and problem-free

The Purple Diamond® Loropetalum grows well in all warmer zones and across the Sunbelt. It thrives in full sun or partial shade, even tolerating light full shade. It grows best in moist, rich, well-drained soil, but is easily grown in almost any garden soil except for flooded soils and strongly alkaline ones. It has no pests or diseases and deer usually ignore it. It doesn’t need trimming to stay neat, but it can be trimmed in summer for hedges and more formal settings.
